The only change from last week’s report for the Sounders is midfielder Mauro Rosales is no longer listed with the shoulder sprain.

After Wednesday’s Open Cup loss, coach Sigi Schmid made it seem like Alonso has a chance for Saturday’s game, more so than Zakuani. We could get more clarity in a conference call with Schmid later this afternoon.

One Sounders fan on Twitter said he saw Alonso at the airport Thursday, an indication the midfielder traveled to Los Angeles for the game.

Update from Schmid: “Alonso traveled down here. Steve Zakuani did not. We’ll make a determination tomorrow morning and it’ll be more of a day-of-game decision with Ozzie. He trained today, so that was good. Now we’ll see how he feels tomorrow.”
